Gate At Home: Digital Tour

The Visiting Hour by Frank McGuinness

World Premiere Starring Stephen Rea & Judith Roddy

As part of the NASC Theatre Network, we’re delighted to have partnered with the Gate Theatre to bring you this virtual tour of The Visiting Hour by Frank McGuinness. Performed and recorded in the Gate auditorium, the world premiere of this new play will be streamed online to audiences around the world.
Written by Frank McGuinness during lockdown for the two renowned Irish actors Stephen Rea and Judith Roddy, this moving play is about an Irish father (Rea) and daughter (Roddy) at visiting hour in a nursing home during the pandemic.
The play quietly observes a daughter visiting her elderly father in his nursing home. His mind is beginning to wander, but conversations about the past can be dangerous, and family memories can look very different, depending on who is telling the story.
Ticket Prices:
Standard Ticket: €25
Concession Ticket: €15
Household Ticket: €40
Support The Gate Ticket: €50
